Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them. George Eliot

While attending a lecture, a participant asked about our digital information and how others will access it after our deaths. We are moving to a world where less and less of us have boxes of random important papers and instead have moved everything online, specifically to our in-boxes. My Gmail, contains signups and passwords, dates of expiration, contacts...etc. If I were to kick off today, how would my wife access my Facebook, inbox and other assorted services when wrapping up the rest of my life? The answer she cannot, unless we have prepared ourselves for the eventuality. 

Below are several links with descriptions aimed at fixing this issue. I would recommend using multiple sites, better safe than sorry.
